Scale

Payment of different rates of interest on CDs of varying maturities. A bank is said to "post a scale." Commercial paper dealers also post scales.

Scale

The range of prices at which an underwriter offers to place with investors a serial bond, where the individual bonds have different maturities.

scale

The schedule of yields (or prices) at which a serial bond issue is offered to the public by the underwriter. The schedule reflects yields at the various maturities being offered. Also called offering scale. See also inverted scale, preliminary scale.

scale

The relationship between measurements on a plan or map and the dimensions of the physical object represented.One inch might represent 10 feet or 10 miles.Topographic maps contain two scales,one for distance and one for change in elevation.

The tensile strength of the silica-filled NR vulcanizates is enhanced with increasing total silane content in the grafted NRs corresponding with the increased modulus and reinforcement index, as shown in figure 4a.
This present work compares the [T.sub.g]s of the silica-filled NRs with different compatibilizers taken from tan 5 peaks, as shown in table 4: The [T.sub.g]s of the silica-filled vulcanizates with TESPT, and OTPS--and MPDTS-grafted NRs, are shifted to a higher temperature compared to the one without compatibilizer, due to an increased degree of filler-rubber interactions which restrict the mobility of the polymer chains.
The results in table 4 show that the use of OTPS--and MPDTS-grafted NRs as compatibilizers gives slightly lower tan 5 values at 5[degrees]C, i.e., a small decrease in wet grip, but lower tan 5 at 60[degrees]C, implying an improvement in rolling resistance compared to the reference compound with TESPT.
